Ontario Taking Next Step to Build a New Hospital in Vaughan

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Ontario is moving forward to improve access to hospital services for patients in Vaughan with the release of a request for proposals to the three teams shortlisted to design, build, finance and maintain the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital project.

Through this project, patients in Vaughan will benefit from:

  • • A state-of-the-art emergency department
  • • Modern surgical services and operating rooms
  • • Advanced diagnostic imaging
  • • Specialized ambulatory clinics and intensive care beds
  • • Acute-care patient rooms, of which approximately 90 per cent will be single-occupancy to prevent and control infections
  • • Integrated “smart” digital technology systems

Infrastructure Ontario and Mackenzie Health announced that the shortlisted teams that have been invited to bid on the new hospital project include Hospital Infrastructure Partners, Mackenzie Vaughan Health Partnership and Plenary Health. The teams were selected following a request for qualifications process that began in March 2014. The winning group is expected to be announced in spring 2016, with construction scheduled to follow soon after.

Ontario’s long-term infrastructure plan will help connect regions, develop new economic opportunities and improve quality of life for Ontarians by supporting critical infrastructure projects in cities, towns, and rural and remote communities all across the province.

This project is part of the government’s plan to build Ontario up. The four-part plan includes investing in people's talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario's history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
